The Biggest Loser--Family Edition!

So the sister and I decided last week we were going to start our own Biggest Loser competition within our two families: Jenny and Matt vs. Jessi and Dave!

I am at a huge disadvantage, seeing as my partner looks like this...



AKA: The skinniest man on the planet. Now, Matthew, before you go all "this is an old picture" on me, I will include a newer one later on in the post to prove my point.

Meet our competition: The Newlyweds




I think we can take them, honey! Now put down your sweet tea and let's go take a walk! *Insert Matt's annoyed face here*

I mentioned this competition to my brother, who also wanted in on the action. I SO wish I had an old picture of him so you could get the whole "this is what college can do you to" effect, but nonetheless, here's my bro with the other men in my life.


Mook, Dad, Matt, & Dave

Okay, this guy could be tough to beat.

Except he went home to my parent's house over the weekend and his first week's weigh in put him UP 2.7%! Ha!

With our combined weight loss % being 0.58%, that puts us definitely ahead of Mook. We are currently awaiting results from the newlyweds.

I'm so proud of my husband for losing 0.5 lbs. this week! What a great job! AND...he had steak, mashed potatoes, Pepsi, and a hot fudge sundae all the day before weigh in. Can I get a "great job" and "I hate you" all at the same time!?!

I will definitely keep you up to date on our progress! Sis and I haven't quite worked out all of the details of the competition (such as how to win, what we will get if we win, challenges, etc.) but updates will definitely follow! We just thought it would be a really fun way to keep up with our weight loss and really motivate each other.

Good luck family!

My family and I did this a couple of years ago...5 of us put in $100.00 each and who ever lost the most weight won the pot. I did not win, I think I came in 3rd, one of my cousin's won the $500.00 (and took us all to dinner, lol)

How fun! I'm sure this will keep you all super motivated!! I can't wait to hear about all of your challenges. And I'm a bit jealous that your hubs was able to eat steak, taters, and a sundae and still lost weight!!! Not fair :( HA
